Astrology and astronomy – the study and interpretation of celestial bodies – have played key roles in development of myths, legends and stories in cultures across the globe. The Mayans, Egyptians, Indians, Chinese, First Nations Tribes and other ancient peoples developed their own ways of navigating and deriving meaning from the skies. We still see millions today seeking guidance through this craft, most popularly through Western and/or Vedic astrology.

Astrology still holds the incredible power to create a narrative of purpose, origin, belonging and to frame the individual’s role in familial, interpersonal, intra-personal and collective dynamics. These powerful narratives reflect – and in their own way – continually shape a culture’s definition and perception of itself at the meta-level.

The discipline of astrology itself has been undergoing revision, refinement and diversification. With the rise of more intuitive perspectives such as Evolutionary Astrology, Soul-Centered Astrology, Karmic Astrology and so on – the field is opening itself to a mixed-method approach, combining traditional, intuitive, esoteric and other astrological approaches with diverse spiritual practices.

Our inclusion of astrological bodies for analysis are continually expanding as we continue to discover new objects in our galaxy. We now know more about the Super-Galactic Cluster (Laniakea) which the Milky Way is a part of. And we will undoubtedly learn more in the years to come. And so the discipline and practice of astrology continues to expand, and transform over time.

Astrology is a Living Art. The collective perception of what it does and how it changes over time reflects the evolution of collective consciousness. Whilst many astrologers are aware of the 13th sign (Ophiuchus) and the Mayan system of 13 moons (which makes an intuitive sense), we – for the most part – have not yet shifted and incorporated these understandings into the mainstream study and practice of astrology. When we do, we will have crossed a certain collective threshold of awareness – it is a matter of being ready for that monumental shift in perception. But that is yet to come, whilst those of us in the know watch for that day with hopeful eyes skimming the astrological horizon.

My work in astrology combines several different modalities. I am an intuitive astrologer who looks at the natal chart as a means of understanding the Soul whose choices have manifested this current incarnation. I look at the Soul’s history, its origins, its purpose (of current manifestation) and karmic patterns it seeks to address through this lifetime. It is the weaving of a narrative that opens the doors and possibilities of fully expressing one’s Soul, as opposed to confining the life-narrative in narrow terms.

A second, more fundamental layer of my work, combines the astrological reading with a powerful energetic facilitation that leads to a deep Soul Re-Awakening. Some describe the process as the rekindling of ‘cellular memory’ as one begins to remember the precious, powerful and beautiful Soul housed in the Physical Body.

The facilitations that I provide lead to a moment of beautiful recognition and awareness of the Authentic Self, stripped away from layers of conditioning and (very often) self-limiting beliefs.

During a reading, I may receive guidance, insight or other forms of spiritual knowledge which ties in with the work that I do as a Priestess. Whilst I am ‘in session’, I access the energetic field of the person I’m reading for whilst speaking to them of what I see in their chart, revealing many layers of self – perceptions of self-identity, ancestral karma, past-life influences, family dynamics, etc.

All of the information I receive through this spiritual modality is confirmed by the mathematically precise astrological alignments present in the natal chart. It is a coming together of two complementary different perspectives and traditions, blended together during the process of facilitation.

Each Soul is unique and each reading is tailored to the needs of the individual. No Soul-Story is the same, no Narrative is woven in quite the same way.

Each experience of facilitation is special, sacred experience – even if you’ve been practicing astrology for 50 years, or have had no experience with it at all.

Please note that I offer a variety of readings, both for the spiritual adept and the relative newcomer to the journey of awakening. Feel free to drop me a line to discuss and discover what kind of session would best suit your current needs 🙂

The Session which best captures the richness, depth and complexity of the process I describe here is the Soul Portrait Masterclass. In it, you get in-depth answers to fundamental questions:

  • Who are you?
  • Why are you here?
  • where did you come from?
  • What did you set out to do and how?
  • How do you best embody your spiritual essence in this physical form / incarnation / lifetime?
  • What lessons have you come to learn in/through partnerships?
  • How do you best express your creativity, joy, and love?
  • How do you best embody a path of service?
  • What kinds of philosophies, belief systems, paradigms or teachings resonate with you
  • What are your strengths, challenges, gifts, vulnerabilities – where did they come from and how do they influence the present/future?

+ much, much more.

The Masterclass has facilitated phenomenal shifts and breakthroughs in spiritual development for many, and it continues to resonate with them months after the reading. It’s been a real game-changer for the individuals who go through the session, and come back out again 😉

The Soul Portrait Masterclass is a 210-minute session and costs 540 US dollars.

Bear in mind that I reserve the right to decide as to whether you’re ready for the intense nature of this session, or if a shorter session would better suit your needs and level of development.
